Class Information Booklet
Welcome to Year 5
In English we have been being very creative and using our imagination to help with our mystery and suspense writing, we have looked at The mysteries of Harris Burdick and chose one of his pictures to write about. We had lots of fun freeze framing scenes and also enjoyed lots of discussion about what had happened.
In Maths we continue working with number exploring fractions, improper fractions and mixed numbers.
In Science we have been finding out about important scientists David Attenborough, Leonardo Da Vinci & Eva Crane
In Topic we continue to learn more about Anglo-Saxons and enjoyed an afternoon with our parents (stay & learn) making anglo saxon runes.
We have learned about forces in Science, including an investigation into how to make a helicopter fall as slowly as possible in an emergency.
In Topic we learned about the Scots and the Anglo-Saxons. Among other things we found out about how they lived and that some of the days of the week are named after their gods. We also still use features of their festivals in our celebrations, such as Christmas and Easter.
We ended the term with lots of fun and excitement in the Christmas show and the class Christmas’s party. Everyone worked really hard to learn their parts for the play, including singing ‘Sankta Lucia’ in Swedish!
Year 5 have had a fabulous start to the year. We have enjoyed learning about our solar system in science and about the Terrible Tudors in history. We also visited Furness College for an amazing STEM afternoon.
